Bushra Siddiq

Producer, Director, Development Producer

I am a resourceful and experienced freelance Producer, Director and Development Producer. I have spent the last 15 years working in both production and development across news, current affairs, factual and documentary. I am a tenacious and meticulous journalist; having spent more than a decade working on flagship current affairs programmes such as the BBC’s Panorama programme, Channel 4’s Dispatches and ITV’s Tonight programme. I specialise in tackling difficult and challenging subjects and have a proven track record in negotiating and obtaining access to sensitive stories. Having worked across various unscripted genres in both production and development, I bring a unique and distinctive insight to my work and can shape and flesh out the narrative of any factual story.
